I could never leave you
You know I never could
Even though you drive me crazy
Even though you know I should
You flirt with all the ladies
You flirt with all the boys
You flirt with my grandmother
Do you hear me making noise?

Three o'clock in the morning
You come banging on my door
I smell the cocktail on your breath
I know just what you're looking for
Three o'clock in the afternoon
You're still taking up space in my bed
I say baby you're no good for me
No good for you, I said
He so careful, why you act like this?
I'm still crazy about your ass
The only thing you crazy about
Is smoking your sister's grass
And still you know I'd never leave you
You know I never could
Even though you drive me crazy
Even though you know I should

You know that I could never leave you
You know that I could never leave you

Yesterday, my birthday
You gone drinking with your friends
I see no pearls, no diamonds
I hear no Mercedes-Benz
Pulling up in the driveway with a silver bow on top
It's not your style it's not your groove
You don't know where to shop
You make me feel so lonely
Like the fridge, my only friend
I wonder is this working
Are we cruising a dead end?

You are a little selfish
And you are a little cold
But I know you'll still be shaking it
At sixty-five years old
So come on over right here
And bring your homies, too
'Cause you know I'd never leave
So keep doing what you do
And still you know I'd never leave you
You know that I could not
Not even for a second you're so motherfucking hot

You know that I could never leave you
You know that I could never leave you
You know that I could never leave you
You know that I could never leave you

    General CommentPeople have totally mis-interprested this song. Yes, it is immensely sweet-sounding, but it has a much darker meaning. This poor girl gets treated like crap by her boyfriend, but of cours,e allows him to do it, because she'll never leave him. I know many girls like this and it certainly doesn't mean they're 'cute' and 'in love'.
